The Strategy includes a number of key infrastructural projects:
- Improvement of the public realm and streetscape of the Templeshannon area including the widening of footpaths, enhanced public lighting, undergrounding of services, paving, etc;
- Improving accessibility and linkages from the Templeshannon area to the rest of Enniscorthy, including the provision of a new pedestrian bridge from Slaney Street to Templeshannon;
- The progressive transformation of the Waterfront Leisure Centre private car park to create a new civic space and a public car park;
- Improvement of the Enniscorthy Railway Station arrival area with emphasis on its connection to Templeshannon and the rest of Enniscorthy.
- A proposal for streetworks at Templeshannon that includes a one-way system southbound was rejected by the members of Enniscorthy Municipal District in January 2019.
